Multi-award winning wildlife photographer, cameraman, explorer, twice awarded the Polar Medal, Doug Allan embarks on a Highlands and Islands tour in Scotland this autumn.
Doug will be hosting an evening of enthralling personal recollections from his travels around the world at the Tarbert Community Centre in Harris on November 21st and in the An Lanntair arts centre in Stornoway on November 22nd.
From being dragged under water by a hungry walrus to being poked by a polar bear in his sleep, Doug never fails to entertain with his exciting stories, Scottish charm and warm sense of humour.
In 2012 Doug published his book, Freeze Frame, about his life as a polar cameraman, and he has recently appeared in the BBC’s Wild Cameramen At Work, where David Attenborough said: “For me, wildlife cameramen don’t come much more special than Doug. There’s just no one else who knows these frozen worlds as he does.”
Doug is well known for his award winning photography and for his camerawork on hugely successful BBC series such as Life, Human Planet, Blue Planet, Planet Earth and the recently acclaimed Frozen Planet and Ocean Giants.
Doug also filmed and presented for the BBC’s Operation Iceberg. In July, he was the castaway on Radio 4’s iconic series Desert Island Discs
With mesmerising footage and incredible photographs Doug will chat about his latest stories and adventures.
